Councilman Bobby Henon was recognized by the Community College of Philadelphia’s Northeast Regional Center Tuesday with the Distinguished Leadership Award. The Councilman was recognized along with other community leaders for his legislative efforts in support of education and his focus on neighborhood service and development. In his remarks, the Councilman thanked CCP – and the regional center, in particular, for being a “good neighbor” and providing pathways for neighbors to higher education and family-sustaining jobs.
“I’m particularly proud to receive this honor because it’s from an institution that shares a similar focus to mine: providing pathways to opportunity in our neighborhoods,” Henon said. “Our City is built on the strength of our neighborhoods and the idea that it can grow outward from a strong, safe and vibrant community. CCP and the Northeast Regional Center only make our neighborhoods stronger.”
Councilman Henon was recognized at a breakfast function at the Northeast Regional Center at 12901 Townsend Rd. along with other honorees, including:
- Kent C. Lufkin, President & CEO, 3rd Fed Bank (Business Award)
- Rob Caroselli, Principal, Fox Chase Academies Plus School (Education Award)
- Rev. Scott C. Dorsey, Pastor, Mount Zion Baptist Church of Holmesburg (Faith-based Award)
- Seth Kaplan, Chief of Staff, State Representative Kevin Boyle (Community Service Award)
- Laura Naylor, Archbishop Ryan High School (Student Award)
The Community College of Philadelphia’s three Regional Centers give distinguished leadership awards to community, political, student, education, faith and business luminaries each year. The awards are given to individuals who have demonstrated achievement and outstanding commitment to the College and their community.
